Tungasuca is the capital of the district of Tupac Amaru in the province of Canas, department of Cuzco, it is located at 3780m above sea level. It was the place where Jose Gabriel Condorcanqui / Tupac Amaru II lived, who gave rise to the rebellion against Spanish rule, considered as the largest anti-colonial rebellion of an indigenous and independentist nature that occurred in Latin America during the 18th century.
Tupac Amaru was the first to ask for the freedom of all Spanish America from any dependence, both on Spain and its monarch, implying not only mere political separation, but also the elimination of various forms of indigenous exploitation. In addition, he decreed the abolition of black slavery for the first time in Latin America (Nov 16, 1780). His movement constituted a "watershed" due to which the colonial authorities eliminated the already scarce noble indigenous class and increased the repression against the Andean for the fear that something like this would be repeated, for which they intervened the house of Tupac Amaru located in the Tungasuca's main square, it would be an act of vindicating so many muffled voices.
At the same time, we would intervene on the facade of the French Alliance Building in the capital of Cuzco, participating in the Biennial of this city, as part of the Bicentennial celebrations.
